Looking for some opinions/advice on which dates to pick!!

Early planning stages of what will be my 3rd trip to Disney World, but the first one in 6 years. SO EXCITED TO BE GOING BACK


Narrowed it down to time frames but would love to here some opinions on which dates you might choose.


Option 1 : September 2019

Pros:
  • Less wait time for the trip.
  • Pre- Star Wars Galaxy's Edge so less crowded??.
  • Most likely will be cheaper.
Cons:
  • Hurricane Season??
  • Will miss out on Galaxy's Edge.
  • Less time to save for trip.

Option 2: February 2020

Pros:
  • More time to save for trip.
  • Cooler temperatures.
  • Galaxy's Edge will be open.
Cons:
  • More crowded post-Galaxy's Edge.
  • More expensive.

Feel like a large part of my decision has to do with Galaxy's Edge opening up. On one hand it would be cool to visit, I am a huge Star Wars fan. On the other hand it will most likely be so crowded it might not be enjoyable. Little worried the crowds could spill over into the other parks.

Love to her your guys opinions and thoughts on which dates we should choose.

February isn't "peak" time, other than the pick-up that happens around President's Day week-end, so it may be a better choice.
September is still REALLY hot--humid, so the weather of February would most likely be delightful.
My vote: February 2020.

I vote for February 2020, just because it will be cooler. We've only been once in September before and it was horrible with the humidity. From the trip reports I've been reading of people who've been in Disney this fall (some of them October), the heat and humidity this year has been just as bad. You can do more when it's cooler and heck, why not wait until Galaxy's Edge is open?

We have been in Feb and the crowds were very low. If possible I would avoid the heat and chance of bad weather in September.

Feb can be cold. September you may hit food and wine if interested. When Star wars first opens it WILL be crowded.
